General :: Android Rom For Standalone Media Player Smartphone

Feb 10, 2014

I was wondering if exist, or if it's possible to build, a special android release for old smartphones without basic phone functions, to be used just as standalone media player. I mean a basic distribution that allow just playing local audio files or remote files through wifi home network.

I have an old xperia x8, which is a good phone and there are a lot of android based custom roms, but i need to use it just as a media player. As soon as I power it on it has to show a list of music files to play.

General :: Boot Smartphone As Non-smartphone In Power Saving Mode

Aug 23, 2013

Is it possible to reboot an Android smartphone as a non-smartphone(Like a Nokia 1100) ? Just enable only services to make phone calls and everything else remain disabled(Slow down the CPU to the lowest clock speeds, lower bit depth, turn off all on-board electronics other than those necessary etc). Motivation is to save power. In my phone most of the power is consumed by Android OS (and not screen). I was wondering if I had a mode like that I could keep the phone alive in case I can't charge the phone immediately, by switching into this power saving mode.

Media :: Optimal App For Getting Streamed Video To A Smartphone Running 2.2 Phone?

Sep 24, 2010

What is the optimal app for getting streamed video to a Smartphone running android 2.2?
On my PC I use VLC but it seems they don't have any Android app (having donated I'm a tad miffed) so is there anything else out there for generic streaming? I have an app for specific broadcasters but I'd like one that I can pick up streams on my own.

Android :: Media Player On HTC Hero Misbehaving And Intercepting Bluetooth Media Buttons

Jan 10, 2010

Even registering the broadcast receiver at the highest priority still fails to receive the Bluetooth media button events on the HTC Hero phone. The Bluetooth media button registration code works fine on the other Android phones that I have tested. Apparently this isn't the first time HTC has done something like this, as I also found a report of a similar problem on one of the HTC Microsoft Mobile Devices reported here

It seems extremely short sighted of HTC to code their media player so that it grabs the Bluetooth AVRCP media button events in such a way that other applications are unable to work with the Bluetooth head phone buttons and Bluetooth in car stereo systems.................

Media :: How To Sync Android To Windows Media Player (including Playlists)

Nov 10, 2010

I use Windows Media Player to manage all my mp3s and playlists. I want my Samsung Galaxy S to be synchronized with my PC. I can connect my Galaxy S using "Media Player" mode and use the built-in sync with WMP, but there are issues:
1) Some mp3s get "corrupted" - how do I force WMP to "re-sync" them without losing my playlist association (if I manually add it as a file to sync, it is no longer associated with the playlist)

2) If I delete an mp3 from the device, WMP doesn't realize and won't re-sync the file again... is there a way to re-sync?

3) Sometimes WMP will re-sync playlists and each song shows up 3-4+ times when I load up a playlist on my device. I then have to wipe the Music and Playlist folder and re-sync from scratch any way around this?

4) Where are android playlists stored? The Playlists folder on the sd card can be wiped, but the playlists still show up in the music player?

5) If I make a change to a playlist on my PC, WMP will freeze and start skipping random files the playlists get corrupt and I see problem #3 occur. Essentially, if I change a playlist, I have to wipe the Music and Playlist folder and re-sync from scratch.

General :: Cannot View DropBox Media From Native Android Video Player

Jan 11, 2014

My friend and I both have a Galaxy Tab 3.

When he uses his native android video player he can see media listed from DropBox (and a little drop-box icon on the bottom left corner of the thumbnail).He also has the options "View by" under the options button and can select "view by content on DropBox ".

-> This allows him to stream the videos from dropbox on the native vid player without downloading onto the device...

I do not have these options!How do i get them?

I need this because i want to use the AllShare option for streaming to my TV that is available on the native video player.

Media :: Converting Videos Recorded With MT3G For Use In Windows Media Player / Movie Maker

Apr 8, 2010

I want to be able to use/view the video's I record with my phone on my computer. (open from an email or use in window's movie maker)I have a new computer with Windows seven at work and a Vista laptop at home. I can send the video to myself and try to open in from my email or tether to the computer and transfer the file manually. Either way I can't open with windows media player. Video's taken with default "Camcorder" app on a myTough 3G running Android 1.6.I know it has something to do with the codec's the phone uses but wonder why they wouldn't use codec's that are compatible with the most commonly used pc's?Is there any way around this? Some kind of converter for the computer or for the phone?Is there another camcorder app that can record video with a different codec or is it phone hardware specific?So far have been able to use these forum's to sort out most of my Android problems but I'm stumped on this one. It doesn't seem like it should be this hard to do. Should be more user friendly.

Media :: HTC Desire - Media Player Doesn't Work

Sep 12, 2010

I have just got a HTC desire and like many people would like to be able to get rid of my iPod all together and have just my phone. The problem I'm having is that the media player on the HTC desire doesn't work nearly as well as iTunes. I have several issues that would needed to be resolved and wanted to know if anyone had a solution to any of them

1) Audio books, I have many of these on my iTunes and on an iPod they are displayed in a separate folder and are removed from shuffles, not so on the HTC, solution?

2) Podcasts, Again i subscribe to many podcasts on my iTunes and wanted to know if there was any way of adding them to my HTC automatically or having them download automatically (Despite this being very annoying and clogging up my hard drive with duplicated podcasts)

3)Playlists I am currently using iTunes agent to sync from my iTunes but it means that I cannot sync playlists that i can then play on my phone. (I can sync playlists just not then play them on their own once they are on my phone)

Media :: Synching Music Using Windows Media Player

Jun 16, 2010

After hours of hit and miss using programs like Double Twist etc. I found that the easiest way to sync music to the iHTC Music player is to use Windows Media Player and buy Album Art Grabber to load the album art. Once you have done the initial sync with WMP you can go back and load individual albums simply by dragging them to the sync area. Connect your phone to the PC and unmount the SD card Open WMP and click the sync tab. Click the drive that represents your SD card (mine was H You will be prompted to sync everything for either this session or all sessions. (I always click this session only). Works great and all I will need in the future!

Media :: Media Player On Hero Not Recognizing All Music

Dec 22, 2009

I've got a ton of music on my SD card in my phone, approx. 6.5GB worth on an 8GB card. The problem is, the music players in Android (I've used the default, RockOn and MixZing, though I want to stay with MixZing) only recognize about 80% of the music, in their libraries. The thing is, the music is there! If I browse to the folder and launch the file it will play, but there's no artist/title data, even though all the files are properly tagged (mp3s), plus, it opens in a weird verion of the default music player that will stop playing if it loses focus.

This has been a issue ever since I got this phone. It's a brand new SD card (my previous one, in addition to this problem, had major corruption issues; I originally thought it was the card but I guess that's not the case). Also, I've gone through two different ROMs (one when I first got the phone, and a second that I upgraded to about a month ago), so I don't think that's the issue. It seems to affect random folders (albums) at different times, whenever the library is refreshed, but I can't refresh the library manually (that I've found) to see if it's just not scanning those files, or if it's a more underlying issue. I'm stumped

Media :: Best Media Player For Long Running Podcasts

Sep 22, 2010

I listen to podcasts and recorded shows that can go on for several hours. I'm looking for a media player with a "skip to" function, so if I get interrupted, I don't have to fiddle with my finger on a slider to find the right section. I just enter "1:33" or whatever and the player goes to that location. Neither the stock media player nor mixzing support that (that I can see). I don't need full RSS support, automatic downloading, I just want a media player that I can skip to a particular spot in a track by specifying the time.
